Place Attachment: Research Object,
Predictors and Trend
Place attachment, as a significant research direction for research on the people-place relationship, has two research orientations: social psychology and phenomenology. As a complex concept, it could be treated as the combination of influences from the environment to people and connections built with the environment by people, and both of which are emotions-oriented. The main objects of research on place attachment are different scales of place, including homes, neighborhoods, cities, and also with the involvement of natural areas and people’s favourite places. Besides influences to it comes form the interaction of social predictors, physical predictors and Socio-demographic predictors. Future research, as the starting point, could base on different groups of people, and further integration of both research orientations, to explore the impact of culture and personality to place attachment.
